What mutation and sex
 
This is one of my 6 budgies in the aviary. I wanted all male but this one sneaked in. I think it's a hen.

Also her colouring is different to the other 2 that came with her. She has brown where the black wing markings are and she is a very muted green.

She looks like a hen to me. I don't know my cinnamons from dilutes so someone more "educated" in that dept. will have to answer the mutation question.

I agree with Wendy :) She is a dark green cinnamon, and probably violet too :)

Thank you both.
What would I need to pair her with to get a really good mutation?

I am not quite sure what you mean by "a really good mutation"? :)

phoenixrose 10-06-2012 02:37 PM

Neither am I really. I don't know much about breeding. :o What would you breed her with if she were yours?

Well it depends, what males do you have? You are basically limited to what you already have in mutations, but if you let us know what males you have we can give you an idea of what mutations to expect from the parings :)

She's lovely!

This is the female with one of the males that are around her age, 3 months.

I have a normal green one too but they are all sleeping now so can't get good picture right now. If you need more let me know. Also, could you tell me if I will have problems in the aviary with one female and 5 males?

How can you tell the difference between a green-violet bird like this one, and a yellow face blue?
